 “I wanted to thank you, Ms. Micula, for sharing your musical expertise with my class.  Your star-studded efforts, during my 2008-2009 school year, helped my students enjoy learning about the Standards of Learning through songwriting and singing. Melodyville was a very unique experience for many of my students because it allowed them to, with your support, creatively express themselves. Their social skills were enhanced by cooperatively writing SOL related songs in groups. Thank you again for your time and efforts.”

LaTonya P. Lawrence,

“I had the pleasure of working with Tina and Melodyville music in my 2nd Grade class.  She worked in collaboration with the students, another 2nd Grade teacher, and me to write music using concepts from our curriculum.”    

“The students loved helping to write the music, enjoyed performing it, and learned the curriculum very easily. I noticed improved grades on SOL material that we had used.”

Jeanne Porter, 

2nd grade teacher College Park Elementary

“My students couldn’t wait for Melodyville. It was a great way for them to be creative while reviewing Social Studies and Science concepts.”

“The songwriting process with the kids is energetic, positive and leaves room for the kids to get involved.”

Julie Clark, 

Songwriter/Grant Specialist, Tidewater Arts Outreach

“During your workshop, the children were transformed from apprehensive, and withdrawn, to eager, enthusiastic and very proud of what you helped them create!  The song you helped them write, “You Gotta Get Up,” was performed at subsequent Samaritan House events.”
